Texas Pharmacy Association Services, Inc.

Enhanced Services Network

Rxpert ESN®

 

 

Purpose

The Texas Pharmacy Association Services, Inc. Enhanced Services Network (Rxpert ESN®) is a high performance network that has adopted the tenets of value-based health care—increase the quality of patient care and reduce overall health care costs. Rxpert ESN® is focused on improving the health of Texans by working collaboratively with other health care providers and ensuring that patients are achieving their therapeutic outcomes with safe and effective therapy.

 

The purpose of the Rxpert ESN® is to develop, implement, and maintain a network of community pharmacies that provide high quality enhanced services to patients to improve patient clinical outcomes and utilization of healthcare resources by working collaboratively with other healthcare providers, health systems, accountable care organizations, and other key stakeholders.  Rxpert ESN® will work with payers to ensure that overall health care spend is optimized and reduced by appropriately managing patients’ medication therapy.  The network is focused on high quality performance in all aspects of the practice including implementation of enhanced services, provision of patient care services, collaboration with other health care providers and key stakeholders, and working closely with payers to improve overall health care resources utilization and overall health care spend.  The participating Rxpert ESN® pharmacies agree to be active participants in the network, collaborating and sharing ideas, and willing to share practice data as determined, requested, and needed by the network.

 

Goal

The goal of the Rxpert ESN® is to improve quality of care and patient outcomes related to medication use, enhance patients’ overall health trajectory and reduce total cost of care.  Key to the Rxpert ESN® approach is active integration of community pharmacist activity with the larger care team, including the primary care physicians, specialty providers such as behavioral health professionals, and the extended care team of the Patient Centered Medical Home.  The Rxpert ESN® will seek pharmacy participation with those that have demonstrated interest in delivering, high quality, patient-centered care that exceed traditional pharmacy dispensing services.
